Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

problem #1

May 102009


  • 58,343 miles


Bought car in 4-2009. First throttle went out within 20 days, replaced by dealer. Dealer went bankrupt within a month. Second throttle replaced 8-2010, third 2-2011, and fourth throttle went out yesterday (4-4-2011.) one GM dealer refused to make repair, calling car a "problem child." (I.e. lemon) another said they did not want to, but would replace throttle, but would not handle the warranty. I have called GM at least five times, talking for hours, and they refuse to think this is their problem. I have repeatedly brought up the dangerous situation a throttle going out creates when the car looses power in the middle of a busy street. They just don't care. GM does have a service bulletin out on throttle problems. I have put @ 5,000 miles on the car since purchase in 2009.
